Whilst on holiday I visited Mariners and it could not be faulted by any of our party. The fish and chips were as tasty as any I've ever had and the portions were a good size. Pricewise it was very reasonable for a tourist hotspot, the staff were pleasant and the venue was very clean. My dad doesn't miss a... More

The menu board outside caught my eye...fish and chips, bread and butter, and a pot of tea for £6.50. I was so glad I spotted it, what a nice place to eat. The food was fresh and delicious. The cod was especially fresh and tasty. Sweet staff, quick service and budget friendly! It normally costs way more than this just... More

My family had a very enjoyable meal here a few weeks ago. All of us ordered fish and chips (various sizes and fish) and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The portion sizes were generous, the batter tasty and crispy and other chips fresh and chunky. Perfect! As well as the great food, the staff were incredibly friendly. I was... More

We were a family of three so my review is based on 3 meals. The reason I mention it is that I was really surprised to see the lower rated reviews on here. Our food came quickly, the portions were excellent and therefore value for money was great. The quality of our dishes was excellent with lovely real chips. The... More

Called in at the Mariner fish bar for takeaway portions of fish and chips. We were quite happy to wait for them to be cooked as it signalled thay both the fish and chips would be fresh. Sadly neither were. One of our group had noticed a bucket full of, what appeared to be part - cooked chips, being poured... More
